Call for Artists – Reflections on Hip Hop

Detailed Information

In KRS-One’s Ruminations, he contends that “Rap is something you do. Hiphop is something you live.” He also frequently reminds us that hip hophas the power to change the world. This exhibition seeks to capture someof the ways that hip hop has been (and continues to be) a part of our lives—individually, collectively, locally, broadly, intimately, publicly.
We invite artists to consider how hip hop appears, manifests itself,and/or operates within their lives as well as the power that hip hop hasto spark dialogue, reflect experience, critique structure(s), envision newpossibilities, and/or enact the type of change that KRS-One so famouslyimagines.
